Abstract: The inspection of solar fields is a tiring and tedious process when done by crews on foot. Each panel must be inspected physically which takes an excessive amount of time. Inspection by foot also is not a very reliable form of inspection. Many forms of problems are missed or over-looked during ground inspections. These problems with ground inspection led to the need for a more efficient form of inspection. Drones have become that new and more efficient form of inspection.
